I Heart Faces- Fix It Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  Here is today's I Heart Faces "Fix It Friday" photo.  I decided to edit and try to give the step as to what I did in PSE (Photo Shop Elements). 

Here is the original photo taken by Angie of her beautiful daughter.

And here is my edit.

Now let me list what I did....hopefully this all makes sense....
First I cropped out the sign and brought her in a little closer.  Used the spot healing brush on the pink stream on the left and the white "blotchy thing" on the bridge in the street.
Added a layer (ctl J) and chose to "multiply" that layer, then decreased the opacity to 19%.
Adjusted the color curves
Ran Amy McMaster's Squeaky Clean and selected the deeper shadows (30% opacity)
And selected the "more color" option (95%).
The I lightened the shadows just a bit.
And finally resized and sharpened for internet (which added the black frame).


Thanks for looking!

Oh, and I meant to mention the white "blotchy thing" -- I didn't notice it at first and now that's all I see in mine. ~haha~
